Line workers take center stage in youth art competition – Farmville


Cooperative Living Magazine is accepting entries for its 20th annual Youth Art Contest, designed to showcase the best work by the youngest members of electrical co-ops in Virginia and Maryland. The theme of this year’s competition is “Why are line workers called heroes?”

The entries should reflect young artists’ ideas about this topic.

The competition is open to children in kindergarten through fifth grade. This year’s competition includes a special twist. All entries will be displayed at the annual Gaff-n-Go Lineworker’s Rodeo taking place May 13-14 at Meadow Event Park in Doswell.

These works will be viewed and judged by hundreds of fans of all ages who come to one of the most exciting and free family-friendly events.

First place finishers in each class will receive a $25 gift certificate. The entry judged to be the best in the show across all categories will receive a $100 gift certificate. All of our winners are recognized in Cooperative Living Magazine and featured on

The closing date for entries is Friday, June 6th.

The artwork should be arranged vertically (portrait) on an 8 ½ x 11 inch white sheet of paper. Art can be in color or black and white in any medium including colored pencil, ballpoint pen, acrylic, charcoal, and pencil. No tracing or party pictures are allowed.

All entries should be submitted using the online form with full instructions at
